You keep a clean house. But as often as you clean your home from top to bottom there are still some things that you probably forget. Some of them are included on this list.

Window Sills

You clean your windows to a mirror shine, but what about the sills? After the winter season, when you open your windows to let the spring air in, you may find that the sills have accumulated dust and even corner cobwebs. Use a wet paper towel to clear away the cobwebs and surface dirt. Follow it up with a slightly soapy cloth and wipe down all areas of the sill. You can use a foam paint brush to clean the portions that are difficult to reach. Rinse and wring the cloth to wipe your window sills dry.

Range Hood Filters

Check your range hood filters, as well as the filters beneath the microwave mounted above your stovetop. They may be coated with a layer of grease. To clean them heat a pot of water, dish liquid, and baking soda. Put the filters into the pot and allow them to soak to loosen up the grease. Use a brush to scrub away the remaining grease.

Lampshades

Lamps provide ambient lighting and they can enhance the look of your décor. But don’t forget that these pretty design pieces can get pretty dirty. Things like dust, lint, and hair can accumulate on the cloth surface of the shade. To clean your lampshades simply use a lint roller. It can’t get any easier than that.

Plants

You water your indoor plants and make sure they receive plenty of sunlight, but just like any item in your house they can collect dust and debris. To help clean the leaves of your plants first use a feather duster. Next, dampen a cloth with water and wipe the leaves clean.
